Congratulations to our newest Teacher of the Week, Mrs. Merrick from Donald C Parker Early Education Center.

Mrs. Merrick scored beautiful flowers from Broadway Florist and an amazing cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes, our brand new ‘Teacher of the Week’ partner.

The winning nomination comes from Emily Schaefer.

Emily writes:

My son, Carson, started Kindergarten almost two weeks ago. His teacher, Mrs. Merrick has been wonderful so far.

Most parents can agree that sending their little ones off to Kindergarten for the first time can be very emotional for both the parent and child. Since day one, Carson wakes up excited to go to school and comes home with a humongous smile on his face, so happy to tell me about his fun day.

In my opinion, a child being so happy during this new and exciting chapter in life is the most important thing in the world. I would like to thank Mrs. Merrick for making her classroom a warm and inviting place each day, and for making my son's day (and mine) a little brighter!
